I think the grain tassels make for a nice contrast. I'm just not in love with the color of noix suede. Too yellow imo. I'd like something a bit more like these. What do people think about having a medallion btw?
Proceeds to recommend the most yellow goddamn shoe anyone has ever seen.
- I like the idea of doing something closer to snuff suede, but I have no real problem with noix either.
- I agree with your assessment about the grain leather.
- My preference would be sans medallion.
- Maybe we should take the discussion about these MTOs to PMs so we don't clog up the thread.
I PM'd Frank about a snuff color. I'd be down for this.. 'yellow' as well though.
This will be the first case of me buying shoes I might never wear and the second case of me buying shoes that I should be considering after I have staple shoes.
It's too something (orange? saturated? I'm not a goddamn painter, why am I on trial? ). Also, roses are grey, violets are grey, my color vision is partially fucked.
Anyhow, I'm more not sold on noix then I am sold on any other particular color. As I understand it carmina has a rather extensive selection of suede, so why not try something new. I mean look at the recent grey adelaides, they turned out fantastic.
I now remember you mentioning this for our last MTO. Was this carminas response to you asking, or to skoab asking? Cause I could understand them saving that option for resellers wanting to differentiate their offerings. I also happened across the photo evidence below just recently, though their policies could have changed since the shoes in question were made.
I think the last ones are Namors btw.
